Valued at $1 trillion by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the ‘Blue Economy’ comprises numerous ocean sectors, including fishing, boat-building, energy generation, and coastal tourism. It’s the world’s largest ecosystem, a vital component to global trade, and critical for food security.

This economy is accelerating quickly – particularly in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Everything from Marine Renewable Energy to maritime services is being affected through the use of collaborative research centers and deployment of new technologies.

Join us to hear about new partnerships, emerging companies, and developing investments in this growing economy.
